Obsidian Announces Avowed
During the Xbox Games Showcase, Obsidian announced the first-person RPG Avowed. The game is confirmed to be coming to Xbox Series X and PC, with it also being available on Xbox Game Pass when it launches, though no release window has been provided.
Avowed is set in the fantasy world of Eora, which has also been featured in the Pillars of Eternity franchise. The announcement trailer can be viewed below.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons milk (optional)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup dark chocolate chunks
For the Dark Chocolate Frosting:
1 cup very hot, but not boiling cream
1 cup dark chocolate chips
12 dried banana chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners.
Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
Mash bananas with milk and vanilla extract until smooth.
Mix butter and sugar together with a spatula until creamy. Whisk in eggs, 1 at a time, then whisk in the banana mixture. Add walnuts, chocolate, and the flour mixture. Mix batter with a spatula until no dry spots remain.
Fill muffin cups to the top with batter, then distribute excess batter as needed. Tap pan against the counter to expel any air bubbles.
Bake in the preheated oven until tops are lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Let cupcakes cool to room temperature, at least 20 minutes.
Pour hot cream over chocolate chips in a bowl. Let sit for a few minutes, then whisk, increasing speed gradually, until color is uniform. Spread ganache over the cooled cupcakes and garnish with banana chips. Refrigerate to firm up the frosting, if desired.
“Pretty sure that this will also come to PS5 as this was the only trailer in the showcase that didn’t state it was exclusive to Microsoft.”
